  1. 1. Research Guide for Jehovah’s Witnesses 2014 Edition © 2014 WATCH TOWER BIBLE AND TRACT SOCIETY OF PENNSYLVANIA PUBLISHERS WATCHTOWER BIBLE AND TRACT SOCIETY OF NEW YORK, INC. Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A. This publication is not for sale. It is provided as part of a worldwide Bible educational work supported by voluntary donations. Research Guide for Jehovah’s Witnesses—2014 Edition English (rsg14-E) Made in the United States of America
  2. 2. Introduction THE PURPOSE OF THIS PUBLICATION Jehovah God urges his people to “keep searching” for understanding and discernment as though they were looking for “hidden treasures.” (Prov. 2:1-5) This means that we need to exert ourselves in searching for answers to our Bible questions and in finding help for our personal concerns in life. This Research Guide for Jehovah’s Witnesses is designed to assist you in your search. This is not a comprehensive index that lists every subject that has been discussed in each of our publications. However, for each topic that is listed, there are references to current and relevant information in publications that have been produced in English, primarily from the year 2000 onward. HOW TO START YOUR SEARCH Look at the Table of Contents on the next page, and decide which subject would most likely contain the information that you want. You may need to look under more than one subject to find it. The subheadings listed under each subject will help you to refine your search. Next, go to the page number that is shown and find the subject and subheading that you selected. From the titles of the articles and chapters that are listed there, select the ones that you want to review. If the publications are available to you at home, electronically, or in your Kingdom Hall library, find the article or chapter that is cited. Keep in mind that even if the title of an article may not seem to fit under the selected subject, the article listed will contain information about that subject. In addition to the Table of Contents, you will find an alphabetical index of topics at the back of this publication. Remember, you are searching for “hidden treasures,” which take time and effort to find. So be patient in looking for the specific answer or direction that you are seeking. The more you use this Research Guide, the easier and more enjoyable it will be for you to find the information that you need. Jehovah will reward your efforts and help you to find wisdom and understanding.—Prov. 2:6; 4:5.
